Intent: To create a unique ship for the Order of the Black Hand to utilize as their faction flagship
Development Thread: http://starwarsrp.net/topic/17541-forging-a-new-beginning/
Manufacturer: Subach-Innes
Model: Heavy Cruiser
Affiliation: Black Hand
Modularity: Yes
Production: Unique
Material: Quadanium steel(frame), durasteel(hull)
Description: A specialized ship, the Anubis, an Anubis-type Heavy Cruiser('type' representing its uniqueness as a starship), was designed for the Order of the Black Hand as a specialized starship. Built in the shipyards of Mon Calamari, located in the Hand-friendly territory of Darth Vazela, the Anubis utilizes a particularly powerful 2:1 ratio matter/antimatter reactor as its primary power source.

However, that reactor is primarily for speed and shielding. The main weapons of the Anubis are mass drivers and flak guns, guaranteed to give most ships(with weaker particle shields thanks to a lack of common projectile-based weapons) a nasty surprise when engaged in ship-to-ship combat. While the weapons are a surprise, they are admittedly ammo-filled, requiring more frequent resupplying than a ship without them. This theoretically limits its effectiveness in long-term battles.

First and foremost, if you designed this as a Imperial-I Star Destroyer look alike, don't be surprised if Kuat Drive Yards comes stomping by.

My first issue is that a flagship, no matter its size, is going to require a dev thread. This is the central ship that a faction is building its fleet around. This should be roleplayed and put in a thread. This is non-negotiable.

The next issue at hand is the name. While we're fairly lax in that regard, naming a ship after a well-known IP, in this case a Decepticon from Transformers, is asking for trouble. I strongly recommend you rename it.

Though the dev thread is of sufficient size, there is nothing in it that would speak to this ships ability to smelt ammunition on the field; a notion that is in itself fairly outrageous as the only other example of such technology comes from the World Devastators. In light of that, I'm going to have to ask that this feature be removed.
